"WORLD OF DANCE" POPS, LOCKS AND TAPS ITS WAY TO A SECOND SEASON RENEWAL

America is in Lockstep with NBC's New Tuesday Hit Series as Judges Jennifer Lopez, NE-YO, Derek Hough and Host Jenna Dewan Tatum Mentor Artists Vying for $1 Million Prize

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - June 29, 2017 - "World of Dance," which was the #1 regular timeslot premiere of 2017 on the broadcast networks in the 18-49 demo as well as the most-watched summer alternative series debut on cable or broadcast in nine years, has been renewed for a second season.

The announcement was made by Paul Telegdy, President, Alternative & Reality Group, NBC Entertainment Unscripted Programming.

"I am so proud to not only star, but produce a show that is so close to my heart,'" said Jennifer Lopez. "I am so happy that 'World of Dance' has resonated with audiences and we are able to put dancers on the pedestal they deserve. I cannot wait to continue this journey and my partnership with NBC."

"We are thrilled that the unrivaled athleticism and authenticity that inspired us to create 'World of Dance' has been embraced by both the dance community and our viewers," said Meredith Ahr, President, Universal Television Alternative Studio. "The amazing dancers competing this season have proven to not only entertain us but elevate our expectations and expand our imagination. The bar has been set extremely high for season two. The competition will be fierce and we will all witness greatness."

"Jennifer Lopez has been a formidable executive producer and leader for this franchise. Her partnership with Meredith Ahr and Universal TV Alternative Studio has been remarkable," said Telegdy. "The extraordinary ratings and digital performance is testament to the unique capabilities of Universal Television Alternative Studio in crafting a format that works on all platforms and is instantly scalable. A good idea needs an amazing launch partner and Comcast NBCUniversal has proven its marketing prowess once again."

"World of Dance" is averaging a 2.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.0 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" results from Nielsen Media Research, making it the #1 10 p.m. series on any broadcast network for the full 2016-17 season to date in 18-49. It's also easily the #1 first-year series of the summer in 18-49 and total viewers, as well as the summer's #2 entertainment series in both measures, behind only NBC's "America's Got Talent." In 18-49, it's the highest-rated first-year summer series through its first five weeks ("most current") in four years, since CBS' "Under the Dome" in 2013. In total viewers, it's the most-watched first-year summer alternative series at this point in nine years, since ABC's "Wipeout" in 2008.

"World of Dance" gives dancers the platform to showcase their talents and compete for a life-altering grand prize of $1 million, led by a judging team of extraordinary dance superstars - Jennifer Lopez (who also serves as an executive producer), Derek Hough, NE-YO and host/mentor Jenna Dewan Tatum.

In partnership with preeminent global dance brand World of Dance, the series brings the world's elite dancers together to compete in epic battles of artistry, precision and athleticism. Solo dancers will compete against duos and crews in an unlimited range of dance, including hip-hop, popping, locking, tap, ballet, break dancing, ballroom, stomping and more.

Handpicked from qualifying events around the nation and thousands of online submissions, competitors are divided into three divisions: Junior (any size act, 17 years old and under), Upper (groups of 1-4, 18 and older) and Team (groups of 5+, 18 and older). Our panel of experts scores the acts using a precise point system developed by World of Dance, using the following criteria: Performance, Technique, Choreography, Creativity and Presentation. The competition consists of five rounds: Qualifiers, Duels, The Cut, Divisional Final and the World Final. In the first four rounds, dancers only compete within their division, but in the World Final - the winner from each division will compete against each other for the $1 million grand prize.

World of Dance is among the most trusted and fastest growing dance and music entertainment brands, combining a successful digital platform of more than 8 million subscribers with the world's largest international urban dance competition. What began in 2008 as a single event is now a continent-spanning, tour de force of human spirit and sick dance moves. The World of Dance Tour attracts YouTube stars, industry icons and tens of thousands of fans to events in more than 25 countries, spanning the U.S., Europe, South America, and Asia. The inspiring performance videos captured from these events drive 30 million monthly views online, making World of Dance the largest dance entertainment channel on YouTube. No language barriers. No animosity. Just pure, awe-inspiring movement.

Also executive producing are Kris Curry, Matilda Zoltowski, Alex Katz, David Gonzalez, Matthew Everitt and Al Hassas.
